Meanings and history of the name Elhanan: | Edit

Biblical origins: Whom God has graciously bestowed.

(1.) A warrior of the time of David famed for his exploits. In the Authorized Version (Sa2 21:19) it is recorded that "Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath." The Revised Version here rightly omits the words "the brother of." They were introduced in the Authorized Version to bring this passage into agreement with Ch1 20:5, where it is said that he "slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath." Goliath the Gittite was killed by David (1 Sam. 17). The exploit of Elhanan took place late in David's reign.

(2.) The son of Dodo, and one of David's warriors (Sa2 23:24).
